The MK3720 is a low-cost, low-jitter, high-performance 3.3 Volt VCXO designed to replace expensive 13.5, 27, or 54 MHz VCXOs. The patented on-chip Voltage Controlled Crystal Oscillator accepts a 0 to 3.3 V input voltage to cause the output clocks to vary by ±100 ppm. Using ICS’ patented VCXO and analog/digital Phase-Locked Loop (PLL) techniques, the device uses an inexpensive external pullable crystal input to produce output clocks of 13.5 MHz, 27 MHz, and 54 MHz. The MK3720D exhibits a moderate VCXO gain of 120 ppm/V typical, when used with a high-quality external pullable quartz crystal. The frequency of the on-chip VCXO is adjusted by an external control voltage input into pin VIN. Because VIN is a high impedance input, it can be driven directly from an PWM RC integrator circuit.
